Hello! As a lot of you will already know, I have been expecting my first baby. I finally sat down and created a mani using UberChic Beauty's Little Baby plate. I intended to post it as my first September mani (my due date was the 15th September), but the little man decided to come early and arrived this Monday! So instead, here are my celebratory baby nails. Read on for more info!

Hello! Today I'm back with some more bright summery nail art, using the same Virago Varnish polishes as my recent flip flop mani (see that post here). At the time, I couldn't decide whether I wanted to do a smoosh or a gradient with the three brights - so I ended up doing both! Over my gradient, I added a sparkly top coat and a bit of simple stamping. Read on for more info!

Hello lovelies! Today I'm back with some more nail art, this time featuring another summery pattern. When I pulled out UberChic Beauty plate 9-01 for flip flop mani in my last post (if you missed that, you can find it here), there were so many other images I wanted to use. I have a few manis to share using it over the next few weeks - first up are these strawberry nails. Read on for more info!

Hello! I'm back with a fun, bright mani to share with you. I'm not quite ready to let go of Summery nails - in fact I have loads of Summer nail art ideas I still want to do! For today, I've used my first ever Virago Varnish polishes. I never managed to try the brand while they were in business, but snagged three polishes in a recent destash. I used them to create the mani below. Read on for more info!

Hello lovelies! Today I'm back to share swatches of a mystery bag from Rainbow Connection. Annette is currently offering a couple of different brand specific mystery bags. I picked up a Colors by Llarowe bag, consisting of four of Leah Ann's creations. I don't have enough CbL polishes so this was an easy purchase!

Hello! I recently asked over on my Instagram stories what my followers prefer and would like to see more of from my blog - swatches, nail art, hauls etc. I got asked for more nail art, so while I still will be doing my usual posts, I'm going to try and factor in a few more nail art looks here and there. For today, I have a bright flowery mani. Read on for more info!

Hello! Today I have March's Mani and Lola box to share. I put this aside under my nail desk, and promptly forgot about it completely! I did a quick poll on my Instagram stories (if you're not following my Instagram, you can find it here), and the majority of you said you still wanted me to do an unboxing/swatch post. So here it is! Read on for my full swatches and a look at everything we recieved.
